Shawnte Mitchell – Aptevo Therapeutics

Will the data provide strong, tangible results or prove inconclusive? Will patients feel positive, negative or no side effects? And, most essentially, will the new therapies serve as a cure for the insidious disease that is cancer? Right now is a critical time for Aptevo Therapeutics and its several oncology therapies. With many potential treatments […]

Shawnte Mitchell – Zogenix

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare, that feeling of helplessness seeing a child in their first year of life being struck with increasingly severe seizures that can lead to frequent emergency room visits, hospital stays, cognitive impairment, behavioral disorders and motor disabilities—even an increased risk of sudden death. Such is the medical and social gravity of […]

Shelby Angel – Match Group

For Shelby Angel, the lure of the law is in how it allows one to see things from many angles. Indeed, her own career has been a testament to that sense of dynamism, having worked for years as a litigator in the Dallas area and, more recently, as an in-house attorney for Gold’s Gym. For […]

Shelly Shaw – Citrix

Touring a chemical plant as an undergrad at Michigan State University, Shelly Shaw suddenly realized she didn’t want to become a only chemical engineer. Instead, as the guide discussed intellectual property during the tour, she realized that her engineering degree could propel her career in law—and decided she wanted to become an intellectual property lawyer. […]

Shermin Ladha Pelinski – Fields Auto Group

Auto shopping will always be among the more personal pursuits, a would-be buyer likely visiting several dealerships, test-driving vehicles and conversing at length with the sales rep before agreeing to a purchase. Shermin Ladha Pelinski doesn’t see that part changing, but recognizes that COVID-19 has had lasting effects on the auto business, as well as […]

Sheryl Kass – Fontainebleau Development

It’s one of the country’s premier real estate development and hospitality groups, Florida-based Fontainebleau Development. And with the executive team eying a wider brand expansion a few years ago, it was critical to expand the in-house legal team. Expertise in real estate finance was a fundamental requirement, and that brought the team’s focus on Sheryl […]

Siddhartha M. Venkatesan – Komline-Sanderson

It was an energizing experience, Siddhartha M. Venkatesan recalls with a good-natured laugh. After all, it’s a rare thing for a 40-something family man—already well accomplished and with a high-profile position at a demanding company—to enroll in an MBA program. But earlier this summer the now 42-year-old Venkatesan earned that honor from the prestigious Wharton […]

Skip Hulett – NatureSweet

Behind every small, sweet, perfect cherry tomato on a plate is a human story. A person supporting a family played a role in that plant’s development—whether it was carefully planting a seed, watering a vine or handpicking the perfected fruit. At least that’s how Skip Hulett, the first vice president and general counsel of NatureSweet, […]

Sofia Almeida Montero – QBE Seguros Colonial S.A.

In a way, Sofia Almeida Montero’s career started with a lie—however white and well-intentioned. When she was 18, Almeida arrived at what would be her “alma mater” to take what she thought was a pre-university political science test. After notching one of the highest scores in her class, Almeida soon discovered she’d instead been enrolled […]

Testimonials

It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
